It's the morning after Cunningham's surgery in Outlander Book 9, Chapter 11
It’s time to face the aftermath of the fight in Outlander Book 9, Chapter 111. Claire is exhausted, but there is still some work to do.
For the most part, this chapter is on the quieter side. However, it certainly sets up some storylines for the future. The main focus is on Cunningham.
It’s clear to Claire that he has lost the ability to walk. She would like to see that it’s not true, but that’s not the case. There are a few signs that he won’t be able to walk again, and one of those is losing the ability to control his bowels and bladder.
However, that’s not all that Claire is thinking about. She wants to know who shot him in the back. It’s a cowardly option, and Claire hopes that it wasn’t Jamie who did it. I think we all know that he wouldn’t purposely shoot someone in the back, but what did happen during the night?
This chapter certainly sets up the plot line for Cunningham’s recovery and for more tensions at the Ridge. I’m not sure if foreshadows too much, though.
Will this chapter be used in the TV series, though? I’m in two minds about it, and I’ll get to my thoughts on that in the adaptation section.
Let’s dive into the Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone chapter.
